Fathers Day Fun

I used a double embossing technique (embedded embossing) on this, inspired by Holly McMillan at Split Coast Stampers.  I heat embossed clear over a stamp of the coral on cream colored cardstock.  I did not put the glaze on the outside (embossed) edges of Spellbinders S4-168 Large Labels.  While still hot, I versamark stamped the fish and then heat embossed with copper EP by Recollections. Stampset is By the Tide by SU.  The mat is brown core-dinations paper by Tim Holtz embossed with SU Chevron, then sanded.  The pearl accented offset die cut edges are done with the negative cut from Spellbinders Borderabilties S5-180, working with concepts in Catherine Scanlon's Mix n Match border die cutting class at My Creative Classroom  The background paper with the chevrons on it are from a Colorbox book of printed papers, and that is matted over the same brown paper as used in the mat for the fish.  Pearl accents are by SU. The sentiment is from SU Teeny Weeny Wishes stampset, punched with SU Word Punch (now retired) inked with VersaMagic Gingerbread  Chalk.
